Promethean sets educators ‘ActivGlide Challenge’

Promethean Logo

As part of the ‘ActivGlide Challenge’, Promethean is asking education professionals to test its ActivPanel Touch interactive display system at a series of events across the UK which is designed to replace the ‘finger burn’ experienced on other screens with a more comfortable and smooth experience.

ActivPanel Touch is designed with ActivGlide Technology, which aims to protect users from the burning sensation that can be felt with other touch screens. It is anticipated that the move will help teachers comfortably deliver interactive content to their students, as well as heightening the user experience. Whether swiping, zooming or writing with a stylus or finger, ActivPanel Touch promises users the same speed and response they would expect with a smartphone or tablet.

Ian Curtis, Head of Northern Europe at Promethean, explains:

“We developed the ActivGlide Technology after listening to feedback from education professionals. The classroom should be an exciting place where students are encouraged to actively participate, but how can teachers do this effectively if they’re not comfortable using the technology they have, quite literally, at their fingertips?”

Ian continues:

“The ActivPanel Touch really is the next step in interactivity. We have worked hard to perfect this technology without compromising the high quality picture, which can be seen clearly from nearly any angle and in most lighting conditions. We want teachers to come and take the ActivGlide Challenge and see for themselves just how smooth, precise and pain-free interactive touch screens can be.”

Available in 65” and 70” sizes, the ActivPanel Touch works with most education technologies, including all Promethean solutions. As well as being compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8 tools, it can also be used with the award-winning ActivInspire software to create a more dynamic and interactive learning experience for students.

Promethean is currently offering a free ActivSoundBar with every purchase of an ActivPanel Touch until 31 July 2014. By mounting it on top of the interactive display unit, teachers can bring cinema-quality sound into the classroom to create a complete, all-in-one solution.

For added reassurance, the ActivPanel Touch is supplied with a market-leading five year onsite support warranty as standard.

Ian concludes:

“The ActivPanel Touch is all about increasing customer confidence. Beyond comfort with day-to-day use, our extended warranty as standard gives peace of mind that in the unlikely event anything does go wrong – their investment is protected.”
